Official PA Newspaper Prints Racist, Anti-Semitic Cartoons
[Published: 05/25/05, 1:45 PM / Last Update: 05/24/05, 8:04 PM]
(IsraelNN.com) Despite repeated calls by the Bush administration to end anti-Israel incitement in the Palestinian Authority media, the official newspaper of the PA continues to regularly publish hate cartoons against Israel and Jews.
Continued incitement against Israel in the PA press flies in the face of U.S. sponsored Road Map plan. Aside from fighting terrorism, one of the primary obligations of the PA under this plan is the elimination of incitement against Israel. As recently as two days ago, at the AIPAC convention in Washington on Monday, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice called on the Arabs to “end incitement in their media.”
Press Release Israel / Middle-East
Anti-Semitism at Core of Hamas Charter
New York, NY, February 27, 2006 … The founding covenant of Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist group whose leaders are poised to take a central role in the governance of the Palestinian Authority, is committed not only to the destruction of Israel and the establishment of an Islamic state in its place, but to raw, unadulterated Jew-hatred.
Adopted in August 1988, the Hamas Charter openly embraces the notorious anti-Semitic forgery, “The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion,” holding it up as evidence that Jews are innately greedy, manipulative and conniving, according to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). The charter adopts classical anti-Semitic canards: Jews as plotting to control the world, Jews acquiring wealth by stealing, and Jews controlling the levers of power in media, government and finance. Such stereotypical anti-Semitic canards have been used through the centuries to defame and demonize Jews, leading to violence, pogroms and, ultimately, the Holocaust.
“The Hamas credo is not just anti-Israel, but profoundly anti-Semitic with racism at its core,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. “The Hamas Charter reads like a modern-day ‘Mein Kampf.’
The Anti-Semitism of Hamas
Anti-Semitism is a major pillar in the ideology of Hamas.
by Meir Litvak
Anti-Semitism is a major pillar in the ideology of Hamas (acronym of Harakat al-muqawama al-Islamiyya – Islamic Resistance Movement), a Palestinian national-Islamic movement, which perceives and articulates its conflict with Israel in Manichean and absolutist religious terms. Like most other Islamic movements in the Middle East, Hamas regards the conflict with the latest and most fateful phase of the relentless onslaught waged by western imperialism and culture against Islam since the Crusades. Hamas publications portray the Jews as instruments of the West or, alternatively, as the power that controls and manipulates the West in this war. Concurrently, it views the current struggle as the last link in the war, which the Jews have been waging against Islam since its essence. Consequently, Hamas emphasizes the emphasis on the “Islamic essence” of the Palestinian cause.”
Modern Anti-Jewish Animosity
The modern anti-Jewish animosity of Islamic movements goes much further than traditional Islam. Although Muslims have always viewed Islam as a superior religion, superseding Judaism, they did not consider Judaism as a heresy, which required eradication, as long as it did not challenge Islam’s rule. Historically, Muslims regarded Christianity as a greater threat than Judaism, and devoted greater attention to it in their polemical literature.
However, due to the conflict with Israel, Judaism rather than Christianity has become the prime enemy for the Islamist organizations, drawing inspiration from anti-Jewish utterances in the Koran and from modern European anti-Semitism.
A good example of this vilification is the Hamas Charter, the movement’s canonical document, which provides a picture of the Jews and Judaism drawn from the notorious anti-Semitic tract, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Article 22, for instance, describes the Jews as controlling the world media with their money and as having established secret organizations throughout the world – such as the Freemasons and Rotary Club – “for the destruction of societies and the fulfilment of the goals of Zionism.” They have “caused revolutions all over the world,” from France in 1789 to Russia in 1917 “in order to fulfil their goal.” Likewise, “with their money, they seized control of the imperialist powers and pushed them to subdue many countries in order to squeeze their resources and spread their corruption.” In addition, Hamas accuses the Jews of fomenting all-important wars in history. Most important, the Jews stood behind the outbreak of World War I, which ‘eliminated’ the Ottoman Empire, the “state of the Islamic Caliphate.” The breakdown of Islamic unity opened the way for the establishment of “the Zionist entity” in Palestine. Likewise, they “were behind World War II, through which they made huge financial gains by trading in armaments, and paved the way for the establishment of their state.”
Of special significance are the wars, which the Jews have waged against Islam from the time of the Prophet. Accordingly, the Jews opposed the Prophet from the moment he arrived in Medina, in a desperate effort to prevent the spread of Islam, rejecting his generous offers and distorting his message. They tried to harm the Islamic umma (nation) and dominate it.”
Derogatory Descriptions of the Jews
In many of its publications Hamas employs harsh derogatory descriptions of the Jews, often taken from the Koran, such as “blood suckers,” “brothers of apes,” “killers of the prophets,” “human pigs,” and warmongers “the descendants of treachery and deceit,” “butchers.” They are a “cancer expanding” in the land of Palestine, “threatening the entire Islamic world.” They are “spreading corruption” in the land of Islam. “Deceit and usury are stamped in their nature,” and they are all “thieves, monopolists, and usurers.”
Almost every issue of the Hamas organ, Filastin al-Muslima contains articles enumerating the evil deeds and character of the Jews based on an analysis and exegetes of specific suras (chapters) from the Koran.
Particularly significant, in view of the historical record, are the equations, which Hamas makes between the Jews, the Zionists and the Nazis and the denial of the Holocaust. Hamas argues that Israel’s actions exceed those of the Nazis, and that “the Jews represent Nazism in its most criminal form.” Yet, following the Stockholm conference on the Holocaust, held in January 2000, Hamas declared that the conference had:
A clear Zionist goal, aimed at forging history by hiding the truth about the so-called Holocaust, which is an alleged and invented story with no basis . . .. The invention of these grand illusions of an alleged crime that never occurred, ignoring the millions of dead European victims of Nazism during the war, clearly reveals the racist Zionist face, which believes in the superiority of the Jewish race over the rest of the nations.
cAbd al-cAziz al-Rantisi, Hamas leader from Gaza, went further by denying the Holocaust, while simultaneously charging that “the Zionists were behind the Nazis’ murder of many Jews,” with the aim of intimidating and forcing them to immigrate to Palestine. Furthermore, he claimed that the Nazis “received tremendous financial aid from the Zionist banks and monopolies,” prior to their seizure of power and that “this great financial aid helped the Nazis build the military and economic force needed to destroy Europe and annihilate millions.” “When we compare the Zionists to the Nazis,” Rantisi concluded, “We insult the Nazis,” he concluded.
Reviewing the life of the late Pope John Paul II, the Hamas weekly al-Risala concluded that his 1998 letter, in which he apologized to the Jews for the Holocaust was his “greatest crime”.
Why Anti-Semitism Is Growing in Germany
By Donald Snyder
Published December 22, 2010, issue of December 31, 2010.
Meanwhile, many of Germany’s 4 million Muslims stay connected with events in the Middle East via cable television networks, such as Hezbollah’s Al-Manar and Hamas’s Al-Aqsa. These are anti-Semitic networks that promote Holocaust denial.
Videos justifying the persecution of Jews and promoting child martyrdom for Islam are shown daily on these networks, fueling anti-Semitism among Muslim youth in Germany.
“You cannot undo with education what these satellite broadcasts are doing,” said Matthias Kuntzel, an author and political scientist, in a phone interview from Hamburg.
The programs are fed to Germany on Egyptian and Saudi Arabian satellites. Both countries have refused repeated German requests to stop transmitting Al-Manar. German law prohibits the dissemination of hate. Although Al-Manar was banned in 2008, private homes with satellite dishes continue to receive its programs, making the ban ineffective.

Why, then, is Erlanger obsessed with this distinction? I suggest that what Erlanger is actually saying is that what is really bad about Hamas is not that it is a racist, terrorist group with genocidal intentions against Israelis but that it is an Islamist organization. If, after all, Hamas is exercising a just right of resistance motivated by Israeli misdeeds, how can it be condemned on those grounds? The trouble with Hamas is that it is a ‘right wing’ religious group rather than a ‘left wing’ nationalist one.

A crowd of more than 10,000 Palestinians Saturday heard denunciations of the PA leadership in the West Bank as infidels at a Liberation Party rally on the sports field of the Quaker-run Friends School in Ramallah.
The party calls for re-establishing the caliphate, or Islamic state, across the Muslim world.
“The caliphate is coming,” read a large poster on the wall of the field.

In the early 1990s, Hamas spokesmen dismissed doubts concerning the realization of a universal Islamic caliphate. For instance, Mahmud al-Zahhar, a Hamas leader in Gaza, claimed that Palestine had always been part of a greater Islamic state and that a distinct Palestinian state had never existed. A comparison between the religious Islamic past and the currently divided Arab world led Zahar to the conclusion that the framework of separate states had utterly failed. He even pointed to the formation of the European Union as an example of the world-wide trend of establishing supranational political units, which the Muslims should adopt as well. If the caliphs were able to control the Muslim nation in the age of the camel and the donkey, then al-Zahar assumed, that the task should be all the more easier today thanks to the modern means of communication and transport. Notwithstanding the movement’s pan- Islamic ambition, spokesmen still gave preference to the Palestinian component of their ideology, even within the framework of the pan- Islamic vision. Accordingly, some of its spokesmen even believed that Jerusalem, not Mecca, would become the capital of the future Islamic caliphate.40 Another example of the wavering between the Islamic vision and the distinct Palestinian identity was the debate between Hamas and al-Qai’da over the priorities of the Islamic struggle.

They are articulating their goals and recruiting thousands of faithful to join the holy fight to reestablish the caliphate and the return of Islamic pride. In a sermon that aired on Hamas’ Al-Aksa TV on April 11, 2008, Yunis Al-Astal, Hamas MP and cleric, told worshipers that Rome, “the capital of the Catholics, or the Crusader capital,” would soon be conquered by Islam, just as Constantinople was. It then, he said, would become “an advance post for the Islamic conquests, which will spread through Europe in its entirety, and then will turn to the two Americas, and even Eastern Europe.”
The Caliphate is Coming
By Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld
FrontPageMagazine.com | Tuesday, January 31, 2006
To Mousa Abu Marzuk, Deputy Chief of Hamas’ Political Bureau in Damascus, HAMAS’ triumph is an important springboard towards the establishment of the Caliphate – a global Islamic state, where life would be dictated by the Shari’a.
In a statement Abu Marzuk made on January 26, following HAMAS’ sweeping victory of the Palestinian legislative elections, he said that HAMAS, the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), is reaping the fruits of its efforts over the last six decades. It was established in Palestine in 1936 – not in 1987, as most mistakenly think. Since then, the movement, according to Abu Marzuk, has carried out its political, social agenda, including Dawa (Prosetylization) and Jihad.

Allah, kill Christians and Jews “to the last one”
by Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook
[Dec. 8, 2010]
A video on official Hamas TV calls for Allah to kill Jews, Christians, Communists and their supporters. The video asks Allah to “count them and kill them to the last one, and don’t leave even one.”
As Palestinian Media Watch has reported this call for the killing of non-Muslims was a regular pronouncement by both Palestinian Authority (Fatah) and Hamas political and religious leaders for many years starting in July 2000.
For years, sermons by religious leaders on official Palestinian Authority TV under Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas routinely presented the killing of Jews as a religious obligation and a fulfillment of the Islamic ideal.
Due to PMW’s exposure of these sermons, which led to international criticism and pressure, Mahmoud Abbas, whose office controls PA TV, has been forced to prevent the broadcast of sermons calling for extermination of Jews on PA TV.
The latest sermon of this nature on PA TV was in January 2010.
[…]see the section on PMW’s website documenting the PA and Hamas depicting the killing of Jews as an Islamic obligation.
The following is the transcript of the Hamas video clip:
“Allah, oh our Lord, vanquish Your enemies, enemies of the religion
[Islam] in all places.
Allah, strike the Jews and their sympathizers,
the Christians and their supporters,
the Communists and their adherents.
Allah, count them and kill them to the last one, and don’t leave even one.”

The Iz-Adin Al Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Hamas, published

murder of Jews simply for the fact of that they are Jews.
The bulletin was published to commemerate the anniversary of the death of Imad Akal, a senior Hamas official, killed in the Gaza Strip on November 24, 1993. The bulletin quotes Akal as saying: “We will knock on the doors of Heaven with the skulls of the Jews”. The bulletin depicts an axe shattering the word “Al-Yahud” (Jews) and splintering the skulls of Jews. The words Al-Qassam are engraved on the axe.

- Racist Islamic-Militant dehumanization of Jews as “apes and swine”

- Calling for [ethnic cleansing] expulsion of all Jews from the entire area.
- Justifying killing Jews who “derserve death.”
- Ironically, or rather typically, these real Racist Arabs, actual Muslim bigots and hidden Nazis’ sympathizers use the terminology: “racism,” or/and “fascism” and even “nazism.” (coating their messages with connecting anti-radical-terrorists operation with something about supposed “against non-Jews” crap, along the lines of KKK’s David Duke language) – to demonize Israeli defenders.

9/11 conspiracy theories rife in Muslim world [WashingtonPost]
By CHRISTOPHER TORCHIA
The Associated Press
Saturday, October 2, 2010; 7:09 AM
ISTANBUL — About a week ago, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad declared to the United Nations that most people in the world believe the United States was behind the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
To many people in the West, the statement was ludicrous, almost laughable if it weren’t so incendiary. And surveys show that a majority of the world does not in fact believe that the U.S. orchestrated the attacks.
However, the belief persists strongly among a minority, even with U.S. allies like Turkey or in the U.S. itself. And it cannot be dismissed because it reflects a gulf in politics and perception, especially between the West and many Muslims.
“That theory might be true,” said Ugur Tezer, a 48-year-old businessman who sells floor tiles in the Turkish capital, Ankara. “When I first heard about the attack I thought, ‘Osama,’ but then I thought the U.S. might have done it to suppress the rise of Muslims.”
Compassion for the United States swept the globe right after the attacks, but conspiracy theories were circulating even then. It wasn’t al-Qaida, they said, but the United States or Israel that downed the towers. Weeks after the strikes, at the United Nations, President George W. Bush urged the world not to tolerate “outrageous conspiracy theories” that deflected blame from the culprits.
However, the subsequent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan provided fodder for the damning claim that the U.S. killed its own citizens, supposedly to justify military action in the Middle East and to protect Israel. A 2006 survey by the Pew Global Attitudes Project found that significant majorities in Egypt, Indonesia, Jordan and Turkey – all among the most moderate nations in the Islamic world – said they did not believe Arabs carried out the attacks.
Two years later, a poll of 17 nations by WorldPublicOpinion.org, an international research project, found majorities in nine of them believed al-Qaida was behind the attacks. However, the U.S. government was blamed by 36 percent of Turks and 27 percent of Palestinians.
Such beliefs have currency even in the United States. In 2006, a Scripps Howard poll of 1,010 Americans found 36 percent thought it somewhat or very likely that U.S. officials either participated in the attacks or took no action to stop them.
Those who say the attacks might have been an “inside job” usually share antipathy toward the U.S. government, and often a maverick sensibility. Besides Ahmadinejad, high-profile doubters include Cuba’s Fidel Castro and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. Former Minnesota governor and pro wrestler Jesse Ventura has questioned the official account. Conspiracy theorists have heckled former President Bill Clinton and other prominent Americans during speeches.
Controversy over U.S. actions and policies, including the widely discredited assertions that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, reinforced the perceptions of conspiracy theorists. Iranians dug deeper into history, recalling the U.S.-backed coup in their country in 1953.
“Initially, I was doubtful about the conspiracy theories. But after seeing the events in later years, I don’t have any doubt that it was their own operation to find a pretext to hit Muslim countries,” said Shaikh Mushtaq Ahmed, a 58-year-old operations manager in a bank in Pakistan. “It’s not a strange thing that they staged something like this in their own country to achieve a big objective.”
In March, an editorial in The Washington Post harshly criticized Yukihisa Fujita, a lawmaker with the ruling Democratic Party of Japan, for saying in an interview that some of the Sept. 11 hijackers were alive and that shadowy forces with advance information about the plot played the stock market for profit. Fujita said the article contained factual errors.
The record shows that al-Qaida agents on a suicide mission hijacked four American passenger planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center towers, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania, killing nearly 3,000 people. The evidence is immense: witness accounts, audio recordings, video and photographic documentation, exhaustive investigations and claims of responsibility by al-Qaida.
Yet every fact and official assertion only feeds into alternative views that become amplified on the Internet, some tinged with anti-Semitism because of the close U.S.-Israeli alliance. They theorize that a knowing U.S. government stood by as the plot unfolded, or that controlled demolitions destroyed the Twin Towers, and the Pentagon was hit by a missile.
“All this, of course, would require hundreds if not thousands of people to be in on the plot. It speaks volumes for the determination to believe something,” said David Aaronovitch, the British author of “Voodoo Histories: the role of Conspiracy Theory in Modern History.”
“This kind of theory really does have a big impact in the Middle East,” he said. “It gets in the way of thinking seriously about the problems in the area and what should be done.”
A U.S. State Department website devotes space to debunking conspiracy theories about Sept. 11, in the apparent belief that the allegations must be addressed forcefully rather than dismissed out of hand as the ruminations of a fringe group.
“Conspiracy theories exist in the realm of myth, where imaginations run wild, fears trump facts, and evidence is ignored. As a superpower, the United States is often cast as a villain in these dramas,” the site says.
Tod Fletcher of Petaluma, California, has worked as an assistant to David Ray Griffin, a retired theology professor, on books that question the Sept. 11 record. He was cautious about the Iranian president’s comments about conspiracy theories, suggesting Ahmadinejad may have been politically motivated by his enmity with the U.S. government.

Sitting With Ahmadinejad « Liveshots
September 25, 2010 – 10:33 PM | by: Eric Shawn
“A feisty interview,” is what the Associated Press called it.
Boy, was it ever.
Sitting down with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was a provocative, if not unsettling, experience.
At one point he accused me of judging him, and asked if I was representing the U.S. government AND the United Nations Security Council.
And he asserted “it is true you are backed by the Defense Department of the United States.”
“You are speaking on the part of the U.S. government,” he said.
“No sir,” I answered. “I am a journalist. I am an independent, objective journalist.”
“But right now you said that the U.S. government has condemned Iran, and that the U.N. Security Council has, and do you represent them?”
“No I do not,” I shot back. “I am representing fact.”
I asked him about his controversial comments about 9/11, in which he claimed that most people believe that the American government was actually behind the terrorist attacks. I asked how he could say such “an insane and nutty thing” and insult millions of Americans. Using words like “insane” and “nutty” during an interview is not my typical style. Then again, this was hardly a garden variety interview. And Ahmadinejad certainly has never hesitated to lob the most potentially insulting and incendiary accusations towards our country and head of state. I asked what proof he had for such a claim, and pointed out that Usama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda have publicly taken credit for the attacks. He said he was insulted — ironic, given his own comments — and explained that he was not giving his own opinion, but merely exploring some of the theories that have been raised about 9/11.
“I did not give an opinion of my own,” he said. “I actually suggested that a fact- finding group, a mission be formed to delve into the truth. Do you think that the entire world has to accept what the U.S. government tells them?”
President Ahmadinejad again denied that Iran is trying to develop a nuclear bomb, and I asked why anyone should believe him considering the fact that Iran is violating four United Nations Security Council resolutions.
“We do not insist that you should believe us,” he said. “We’ve never said that you should. You are free not to believe us. But why would you insist on exposing your view on us with resolutions, with force?”
He said he would not meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “Why should I meet him?” he asked. And he denied Iran supports terrorism, saying “from the day American troops and the allied troops entered Iraq and Afghanistan, terrorists have increased one-hundred fold…we are victims of terrorism.”
He often answered questions with questions, and didn’t want to be interrupted, as I repeatedly tried to clarify and challenge some of his assertions. He accused me “of almost arguing” with him. It’s hard not to “almost argue” with someone who looks you straight in the eye and suggests that your government is behind the killing of thousands of its own people. It’s hard not to “almost argue” with someone who would represent himself as a purveyor of peace, even as his regime continually defies Security Council resolutions regarding its disputed nuclear program and condones the stoning of its own people. It’s hard not to “almost argue” with someone who has questioned the Holocaust and has called for wiping Israel off the map.
And at the end of the day, he insists that his message to the “good people of America” is one of peace and good will….. a message, delivered, as all his statements seems to be, with a smile.

The ‘911 Conspiracy Theories’ origin: Iranian backed Arab-Muslim Terrpr Group: Hezbollah – First to come up with a vile theroy on Sep. 17, 2001
9/11 Conspiracy Theories Take Root in Arab/Muslim World Sep 8, 2006
…it was Hezbollah’s television station al-Manar, six days after 9/11, that “reported” that 4,000 Israelis employed at the World Trade Center did not show up for work that day because they were told in advance of the attacks…. And there are plenty of people, for a variety of reasons, who are ready to buy into such a theory — some because they don’t like Israel; some because they don’t like America; some because the preaching of radical Islamic mullahs has brought anti-Semitism into the mosque; some because it is easier to blame the Jew than face up to the challenge of terrorist versions of Islam.
The 9/11 conspiracy theory tells a lot about how these things work. It is exactly because the charge is so absurd and shown to be false that it has such appeal. Who could think that Israel would commit such a heinous act against its main ally in the world? The deviousness and cunning that underlies this perspective is what makes it so alluring. The evil that explains it has no bounds. All, it is said, is done to draw the United States into a war against Islam to serve Zionist ends…
Anger, conspiracy and 9/11 truth Sep 11, 2006 [WND]
… However, where 9/11 conspiracy theorists cross the line into … Let’s bring this down to earth with an illustration: Have you ever wondered why so much of the Arab-Muslim world eagerly believes the wildest, most laughably absurd conspiracy theories?
Right now, for instance, Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV is broadcasting with a straight face the claim that “Zionist squads specializing in car bombs” are terrorizing Iraq. Meanwhile, Hezbollah’s leader, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, insists that all the bombings of Christian churches in Iraq have been the work of the CIA and Mossad.

Hezbollah has long used the satellite broadcaster Al-Manar as a medium for … law due to its anti-Semitic/Western and racist programming. …
Hezbollah: Al-Manar: Hezbollah Television Mar 31, 2008 …
Al-Manar’s former programming director, Sheikh Nasir al-Akhdar, has said that the station’s goals are to “wage psychological warfare” and “promote the Islamic resistance.” He has further explained that “the ‘war’ with the Zionist enemy continues.
Al-Manar broadcasts Hezbollah’s messages to an estimated daily audience of 10-15 million viewers. During the Muslim holy month of Ramadan in 2003, Al-Manar aired Ash-Shatat (“the Diaspora”), a 30-part series produced in Syria and based on the anti-Semitic literature the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion.”
Al-Manar also appears to be the source of the conspiracy theory that claimed that 4,000 Israelis were absent from their jobs at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, implying that Israel was responsible for the terrorist attacks of that day. In addition to broadcasting the conspiracy, Al-Manar also posted the story on its Web site, which enables viewers to watch live streaming video of the network. The September 11 conspiracy story was later picked up by extremists around the world.
Al-Manar often airs interviews and speeches, given by Hezbollah leaders, that incite violence. In several addresses aired during a Shi’i festival in February 2006, for example, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah condemned a Danish newspaper that published cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad. Nasrallah urged European parliaments to “draft laws that ban newspapers from insulting the Prophet” and warned, “Today we are protesting…but we are ready to shed our blood.”
On March 24, 2008, Al-Manar broadcasted a speech by Nasrallah to mark the end of the 40-day mourning period for Imad Mughniyah, a Hezbollah military commander killed the previous month. In his speech, Nasrallah stated that “The Zionist entity can be wiped out of existence,” warned of “Zionist-American propaganda” and spoke about the “bloody war of consciousness” in which Israel, helped by some Arabs and Europeans, has “infiltrated” the media. Nasrallah also stated that “Mughniyah will remain the pillar for the resistance in his martyrdom as he was the pillar of the resistance during his life, his jihad and his work. We…will continue to follow his path.”
The U.S. State Department designated Al-Manar as a terrorist entity and added the satellite station to the Terrorism Exclusion List in December 2004. Two years later, the U.S. Treasury Department added Al-Manar, along with its parent company, the Lebanese Media Group, to its Specially Designated Global Terrorist List, which resulted in economic sanctions against the station and made it illegal for any U.S. persons to engage in financial transactions with it. In June 2009, Javed Iqbal and Saleh Elahwal were sentenced in a Manhattan federal court to nearly six years in prison and 17 months in prison, respectively, for distributing broadcasts of Al-Manar in New York and providing material support to Hezbollah.
Several European countries, including France, Spain, Germany and the Netherlands, as well as Australia, have also taken measures to block Al-Manar. In March 2005, the broadcasting regulators in the European Union agreed to ban satellite broadcasting of Al-Manar on the basis that the channel carried racist material and incitement. As a result, several satellite service providers, most of them European, dropped Al-Manar, making it unavailable in North and South America, Asia and Australia. Al-Manar, is, however, still available in Europe through Arab satellite companies and its Web site offers English, French and Spanish translations of its material.

Hezbollah’s Nazi roots [National Post]
This is the first Middle East war in which the main threat to Israel comes, not from secular Arab nationalism, but from Islamism.
Both Hezbollah and Hamas draw their main inspiration, armaments and funding from Islamist sources, ranging from the Sunni ideologues of the Muslim Brotherhood to the Shiite demagogues of Iran. What unites them all is a fanatical dedication to the destruction of Israel.
Sounding like a modern-day Hitler, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad this week repeated his call for the “elimination” of Israel, home to six million Jews. Hezbollah, Iran’s proxy army in Lebanon, shares that objective. Its leader, Hassan Nasrallah, has urged the world’s Jews to collect in Israel in order to facilitate the task of exterminating them…
Hezbollah’s Nazi salute evokes memories of Hitler’s support for Arab agitators such as the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the leaders of a pro-Nazi coup in Iraq. The Nazi legacy also manifests itself in Holocaust denial or revisionism, a Middle Eastern obsession that unites the most extreme Islamists, including Iran’s president, with “moderate” secularists such as Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas..
Al-qaeda accuses Iran, Hezbollah for spreading lying “theories” for its “Shiite” political goals
Al-Qaida: Hezbollah started rumor that Israel was behind 9/11 …Apr 23, 2008 …
By The Associated Press
Osama bin Laden’s deputy Al-Zawahri accused Hezbollah’s Al-Manar television yesterday of starting a conspiracy theory that Israel was behind the 2001 suicide airplane attack against the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
“The purpose of this lie is clear – [to suggest] there are no heroes among the Sunnis who can hurt America as no else did in history. Iranian media snapped up this lie and repeated it,” he said in a tape posted on an Islamic Web site.
Al Qaida Number 2: Iran Propagated 9/11 Conspiracy Theory [HuffingtonPost]
MAGGIE MICHAEL | April 22, 2008 11:24 AM EST
CAIRO, Egypt — Osama bin Laden’s chief deputy in an audiotape Tuesday accused Shiite Iran of trying to discredit the Sunni al-Qaida terror network by spreading the conspiracy theory that Israel was behind the Sept. 11 attacks.
The comments reflected al-Qaida’s No. 2 leader Ayman al-Zawahri’s increasing criticism of Iran. Al-Zawahri has accused Iran in recent messages of seeking to extend its power in the Middle East, particularly in Iraq and through its Hezbollah allies in Lebanon.
The authenticity of the two-hour audio recording posted on an Islamic Web site could not be independently confirmed. But the voice sounded like past audiotapes from the terror leader, and the posting where it was found bore the logo of Al-Sahab, al-Qaida’s official media arm.
It was the second of two messages answering questions that were posted to Islamic militant Web sites earlier this year.
One of the questioners asked about the theory that has circulated in the Middle East and elsewhere that Israel was behind the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Al-Zawahri accused Hezbollah’s Al-Manar television of starting the rumor.
“The purpose of this lie is clear _ (to suggest) that there are no heroes among the Sunnis who can hurt America as no else did in history. Iranian media snapped up this lie and repeated it,” he said.
“Iran’s aim here is also clear to cover up its involvement with America in invading the homes of Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq,” he said.
Iran cooperated with the United States in the 2001 U.S. assault on Afghanistan that toppled al-Qaida’s allies, the Taliban.
Answering questions about Iraq in Tuesday’s tape, al-Zawahri said the insurgent umbrella group led by al-Qaida, called the Islamic State of Iraq, is “the primary force opposing the Crusaders and challenging Iranian ambitions” in Iraq, he said, referring to the Americans.
As he often does in his messages, al-Zawahri denounced the “Crusader invasion” of Iraq, but in Tuesday’s tape he paired it with a mention of “Iranian complicity” or “Iranian agents.”
In the latest tape, al-Zawahri was also asked if the terror group had further plans to attack Western countries that participated in the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq and subsequent war.
“My answer is: Yes! We think that any country that has joined aggression on Muslims must be deterred,” he replied.
In response to a question signed by the Japanese news agency Kyodo asking if Japan remains a target because it once had troops in Iraq, al-Zawahri said “Japan provided help under the banner of the crusader coalition … therefore it participated in the Crusader campaign against the lands of Islam.”
Japan deployed non-combat troops to southern Iraq in 2003 to carry out reconstruction work. It withdrew its troops from Iraq in 2006 and now conducts airlifts to help supply U.S.-led forces in that country.
Al-Zawahri spoke on a wide range of issues, even global warming, which he said reflected “how criminal, brutal and greedy the Western Crusader world is, with America at the top.”
He predicted that global warming would “make the world more sympathetic to and understanding of the Muslims’ jihad against the aggressor America.”
Asked if there are any women in al-Qaida, the terror leader answered simply: “No.” In a follow-up answer, he said: “There are no women in al-Qaida jihadi group, but the women of the mujahedeen are playing a heroic role in taking care of their houses and sons.”
In several parts of Tuesday’s audio message, Al-Zawahri claimed that the Taliban took over 95 percent of Afghanistan and is sweeping Pakistan as well.
“The Crusaders and their agents in Pakistan and Afghanistan are starting to fall,” he said.
In another answer Tuesday, al-Zawahri said it was against Islamic religious law for any Muslim to live permanently in a Western country because in doing so they would “have permanent stay there under the laws of the infidels.”
Al-Qaida’s media arm, Al-Sahab, announced in December that al-Zawahri would take questions from the public posted on Islamic militant Web sites and would respond “as soon as possible.” Queries were submitted on the main Islamist Web site until the cutoff date of Jan. 16.

On the Palestinian side, abuses against the press tend to be a function of events on the ground. Palestinian security forces have confiscated film from photographers and threatened reporters who have covered stories deemed sensitive. So, too, have Palestinian militants and demonstrators. In a highly publicized incident in 2001, Palestinian security forces harassed and prevented several journalists from covering demonstrations of Palestinians in the West Bank city of Nablus who were celebrating the attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C. In another incident in 2001, a PNA official issued a veiled threat to an Associated Press cameraman who had filmed Palestinians in the West Bank town of Nablus celebrating the September 11 attacks. The official said that the journalist’s safety could not be guaranteed if the footage were aired.

Palestinians celebrate [Daily Star, Sep. 12, 2001]
‘Support to our intifada’
Daily Star correspondent
Palestinian refugees spilled into the streets of their shantytowns in Lebanon to rejoice at the carnage in New York and Washington on Tuesday, defying their own leadership’s firm condemnation of the apparent terrorist strikes.
Refugees toured the Ain al-Hilweh camp near Sidon, firing their rifles in the air in a noisy display of glee.
“Whoever protects terror should know how to protect himself,” one elderly man said.
Women ululated and bagpipers played patriotic songs as the refugees converged on the vegetable market, the largest square in the camp.
Shopowners handed out sweets as small television sets aired time and again images of the World Trade Center’s twin towers on fire and tumbling down after the attacks.
The cheering grew louder when the television spots shifted to the American capital to show a section of the Pentagon on fire after it had been hit by a third aircraft.
The scenes were similar in the camps of Rashidieh, near Tyre; Bourj al-Barajneh in Beirut; and in the North’s Nahr al-Bared, where Palestinian frustration with American support for Israel during the latest violence has been on the rise.
“What happened to America today vindicates the Palestinians and all those suffering the injustice this big power has been imposing on the world,” said Ain al-Hilweh’s Ahmad Hussein, who is in his late teens.
Fatima Khalil said: “It’s like an earthquake that proves that justice will ultimately triumph. This lends support to our intifada.”
Issam Mohammed, in his early teens, said that he wanted to see President Bush “lying in the basement somewhere, fearful for his life, to understand what the Palestinians are going through day after day.”
Nearby young men and women sang together: “Where to? To Ramallah. Where to?

Rejoicing in the streets of Jenin
While many Palestinians celebrate the attack on the U.S., Yasser Arafat denounces it as “unacceptable” and Israelis mourn.
By Flore de Préneuf JENIN, West Bank — In Jenin, they know a good terrorist attack when they hear about it.
The walls of people’s homes here are covered with posters glorifying Islamic terrorists and Palestinian “martyrs.” The area, in the northern West Bank, has produced more suicide bombers than any other Palestinian town since the beginning of the intifada nearly a year ago. Most recently Jenin operatives lent a hand to the Israeli Arab kamikaze who killed three Israelis and wounded dozens of others at a train station Sunday. Israeli tanks moved in Monday night to seal off the area in an effort to stop local terrorists from carrying out further attacks on Israel.
But Palestinian militants have never achieved terror of the magnitude seen today in the United States.
When young armed Palestinians patrolling the streets of a refugee camp in Jenin heard the news from New York and Washington, they chuckled with glee. One of them thanked God for his mighty revenge against the United States, Israel’s ally and main weapons supplier.
Elsewhere in the West Bank and in Gaza, thousands of Palestinians applauded the devastating blows, cheering openly in the streets and distributing celebratory candy to passersby. Some shouted that they hoped Tel Aviv would be next or vowed to complete what they believe Osama bin Laden has started.
Indeed, people here think Osama bin Laden is a more likely suspect for the attacks than Palestinian groups. The Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the Damascus-based Marxist organization that initially claimed and then rejected responsibility for the terrorist attacks, has only a tiny following among Palestinians and has little “street credibility.” Of course, there is still no proof that any figure from the Arab world has anything to do with the attack — Oklahoma City, too, was first blamed on Muslim forces — but that didn’t dampen the celebration here.
The loud rejoicing, however, was far from universal. Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat expressed his condolences to President Bush and condemned the crime as “dangerous and unacceptable.” Palestinian legislator and spokeswoman for the Arab League Hanan Ashrawi called it “a horrible act of absolute immorality, viciousness and evil.”
Israelis, for their part, greeted the news with angst and disbelief as if the terror attack had happened on their soil. Many Jews have relatives in the United States. But beyond the family link, there’s a very strong identification with the victims of terrorism, given Israel’s long and tragic experience with suicide bombers, booby-trapped cars and deadly ambushes.
Israelis interviewed on national television also expressed the hope that America would “finally understand” and stop condemning Israel for the protective and retaliatory measures it has taken over the past year in its fight against Palestinian activism. Many hoped that the bond between Israel and the U.S. against evil (widely assumed to be Islamic) will be stronger now that the strikes have brought home the price of fanaticism.
In material terms, Israel’s security was also directly affected by the assaults on New York and Washington. Israel closed its air space to flights from abroad, put its air force on high alert and evacuated its embassy and consulates in the United States. Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has offered to send rescue teams to the United States.

Palestinian Authority celebrates 9/11
Official paper’s cartoons glorify bin Laden, mock U.S. suffering
Posted: September 18, 2007
1:00 am Eastern
On the sixth anniversary of 9/11, the U.S.-backed Palestinian Authority continued its tradition of celebrating the attacks by publishing cartoons in its official daily that glorify Osama Bin Laden and mock American suffering.
Palestinian Media Watch reported a cartoon in Al Hayat Al Jadida – owned by the PA and controlled by the office of President Mahmoud Abbas – showed the al-Qaida leader making the “V” for victory sign with two fingers in the shape of the burning Twin Towers.
The only text on the cartoon is “Exclusive to Al Hayat Al Jadida,” which means it was prepared specifically for the official PA daily, notes PMW.
The Israeli media monitor says the PA’s celebration of 9/11 goes back to the day of the attacks in 2001 when the world was shocked by televised scenes of Palestinians rejoicing in the streets.
A December 2005 poll by the Norwegian Institute for Applied International Studies found 65 percent of Palestinians supported al-Qaida actions in the U.S. and Europe.
Earlier this year, PMW said, a former minister from Abbas’ Fatah party, Abu Ali Shahin, wished al-Qaida success against the U.S. and in its targeting of President Bush.
The Fatah leader said in an interview on official PA TV Jan. 1: “Oh [al-Qaida] brother, leave us and focus on your business. You have Bush! Do to Bush what you want, and we wish you success with Bush, even more. I, Abu Ali Shahin, wish you success with Bush… We are fighting the Americans and hate the Americans more than you!”
PMW pointed out Washington. continues to support politically and financially PA institutions and the PA itself, while ignoring promotion of hatred toward the U.S.

Lesson in hypocrisy Massive overreaction by Americans and their allies over WikiLeaks details
By MICHAEL COREN. QMI Agency
Last Updated: December 4, 2010 2:00am
The WikiLeaks revelations we have been waiting for turned out to be little more than the obvious, the banal, the mildly interesting and the confirmation of what we assumed to be the case in the first place.
We were told intelligence agencies gather information on other countries, that the Americans think Canadians lack self-esteem and are anti-American, that the Europeans can be smug, and Prince Andrew can be slightly rude.
Well I never. What is more interesting about the whole episode is the massive overreaction of the Americans and their allies, and also why a neurotic, sexually confused loner and self-confessed nerd was allowed access to classified information in the U.S. military, when everything about him screamed “untrustworthy, and potential spy.”
Also, why the New York Times, among others, refused to print the climategate leaks as they were “gathered illegally,” but so relished printing the WikiLeaks information.
The answer, of course, is as apparent as a liberal’s hypocrisy. The climategate e-mails showed some of the zealots behind the global warming industry to be dishonest and malicious, and so discredited the left.
The WikiLeaks material embarrasses the military, Washington, and those considered more hawkish.
The crass double standards of the New York Times and their comrades aside, one aspect of the story that deserves more attention is the desire of the King of Saudi Arabia for the West to bomb Iran.
Again, this should come as no surprise to anybody who understands the Middle East but it does confirm the genuine, rather than the Lawrence of Arabia/George Galloway fantasies, about the region.
There is no such thing as Arab brotherhood and Muslim brotherhood, and no concern for the Palestinians beyond how they can be used as a stick to bash the Jews and the West. The most long-lasting and sadistic empire within the Islamic world was the Ottoman Empire and the Turkish Ottomans were and are Muslim.
Most of the victims of Muslim terror are other Muslims, and there is no racism like the racism of an Arab Muslim towards a Pakistani Muslim, a Persian Muslim towards an Arab Muslim, and a Turk towards an Arab or a Pakistani. As for Middle Eastern Muslim views on black Muslims, don’t even ask.
We in the non-Islamic world beat ourselves up for being insensitive, when we are models of equality and racial and religious tolerance. The Saudis want nothing more than their Sunni country to be protected against Shiite Iranians, and in this they are joined by the Egyptians, the Jordanians and the Gulf states. The Syrians also detest the Iranians, but they are too geographically close to them to admit this and so play a very careful game.
Informed sources claim the Saudis have already told Israel their air defence systems will be turned off at certain times, and this isn’t so they can do repair work! The Palestinians? Everyone treats them badly, but only Israel is blamed.
WikiLeaks doesn’t really change very much at all, but perhaps it does give us a glimpse into the world behind the screams and banners of the usual protesters and moaners.
IDI AMIN: A PROFILE OF A RUTHLESS DICTATOR, GENOCIDAL, A BIGOT, RACIST AND ISLAMIC FASCIST
ISLAMIC LEADER: IDI AMIN
Idi Amin, Murderous and Erratic Ruler of Uganda in the 70’s, Dies in Exile
By MICHAEL T. KAUFMAN
Published: August 17, 2003
Idi Amin, whose eight-year reign of terror in Uganda encompassed widespread killing, torture and dispossession of multitudes and left the country pauperized, died yesterday in Jidda, Saudi Arabia, where he had lived for years in exile. He was believed to have been about 78 years old, though some reports said he was as old as 80.
Mr. Amin had been hospitalized and on life support since mid-July. He died from multiple organ failure, Reuters reported.
For much of the 1970’s, the beefy, sadistic and telegenic despot had reveled in the spotlight of world attention as he flaunted his tyrannical power, hurled outlandish insults at world leaders and staged pompous displays of majesty.
By contrast, his later years were spent in enforced isolation as the Saudi Arabian authorities made sure he maintained a low profile. Mr. Amin, a convert to Islam, his four wives and more than 30 children fled Uganda just ahead of an invading force of Ugandan exiles and Tanzanian troops that overthrew his government. They went first to Libya, and eventually to Saudi Arabia.
By the time he had escaped with his life, the devastation he had wreaked lay fully exposed in the scarred ruins of Uganda. The number of people he caused to be killed has been tabulated by exiles and international human rights groups as close to 300,000 out of a total population of 12 million.
Those murdered were mostly anonymous people: farmers, students, clerks and shopkeepers who were shot or forced to bludgeon one another to death by members of death squads, including the chillingly named Public Safety Unit and the State Research Bureau. Along with the military police, these forces numbering 18,000 men were recruited largely from Mr. Amin’s home region. They often chose their victims because they wanted their money, houses or women, or because the tribal groups the victims belonged to were marked for humiliation.
But there were also many hundreds of prominent men and women among the dead. Their killings were public affairs carried out in ways that were meant to attract attention, terrorize the living and convey the message that it was Mr. Amin who wanted them killed. They included cabinet ministers, Supreme Court judges, diplomats, university rectors, educators, prominent Catholic and Anglican churchmen, hospital directors, surgeons, bankers, tribal leaders and business executives.

[ISLAMIC] FASCISM – ADMIRING HITLER
Muslim Attitudes to Jews and Israel: The Ambivalences of Rejection, Antagonism, Tolerance and Cooperation, Moshe Ma’oz, Sussex Academic Press, 2009, Page 253
February 1972, the Muslim president of Uganda, Idi Amin, visited Qadhafi in Tripoli and received promises of military and financial assistance if he cut off relations with the “Zionist entity.” In a joint statement, both presidents emphasized their desire to base their regimes on Islam and expressed their support for “the Arab struggle against Zionism and Imperialism.” One month later, Idi Amin severed Uganda’s diplomatic relations with Israel and called on all Israelis to leave Uganada.
Since then, Amin became a sworn enemy of Israel and the Jews… Amin’s anti-Semitism reached a peak when, in September 1972, he sent a telegram to UN secretary-General Kurt Waldheim in which he applauded the massacre of Israeli Olympic athletes in Munich and added that Germany was the most appropriate for this because it was where Hitler burned more than six million Jews…
… Amin’s “Hitler telegram” elicited angry reactions in the world at large and many African laeders, including Muslims, denounced it. In September 1972, Amin declared the black Jewish community of Uganda, known as the Abayudaya (Jews), to be illegal and their synagogues were destroyed…

And through the yeas, he also targeted assorted groups, including real and [p. 65] perceived enemies, across the spectrum, and praised Hitler as a true nationalist for persecuting and exterminating Jews. He even expelled almost all Asians from Uganda in 1972, including Ugandan citizens of Asian – mostly Indian and Pakistani – origin, and gave them only three weeks to leave the country. About 70,000 left Uganda…
President Julius Myerere of Tanzania condemned Idi Amin for expelling the Asians and called him a racist.
